Canned vegetables (baby corn, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, hearts of palm)

racer x | Jan 12, 2012 04:15 PM

Is there a reliable way to get rid of the off-flavors from the can or other packaging when cooking with vegetables?

I have some bamboo, for instance, that was sealed in a plastic package. I poured off the liquid, rinsed the bamboo several times with fresh water, then left the bamboo to soak in salted water for over 24 hours, but it still has an off taste.

How to rescue these vegetables?
